About the Host
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Throne of Grace Parish, Windsor. Welcome you to this year’s edition of “IN HIS PRESENCE”. The RCCG was led by the founding pastor, Revered Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi from 1952 to 1980 after which Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye a former mathematics professor at the University of Lagos, Nigeria has been leader of the church from 1981 to date. Pastor Adeboye’s stewardship has seen an unprecedented transformation and expansion of the church to representations in over 160 countries with over 600 parishes in North America.
THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH :
- To make heaven.
- To take as many people with us.
- To have a member of RCCG in every family of all nations.
- To accomplish No. 1 above, holiness will be our lifestyle.
- To accomplish No. 2 and 3 above, we will plant churches within five minutes walking distance in every city and town of developing countries and within five minutes driving distance in every city and town of developed countries. We will pursue these objectives until every Nation in the world is reached for the Lord Jesus Christ.
The church seeks to achieve and execute this mission with due adherence to the word of God as enshrined in the Holy Bible and by the leading of the Holy Spirit. One of the popular programs of the church is the Holy Ghost service – an all night miracle service held monthly. This service also holds in different parts of the world under the platform “Festival of Life” in countries such as the UK, India, USA, Canada, SA, Australia, Dubai, and Ghana. See trailers on “Arise” on Cogeco channel 19 and Bell channel 261 on Sunday at 5:30pm.
In Canada, the first parish of RCCG was inaugurated in 1995. We now have more than 80 parishes and 7 zones headquartered in Ottawa with Pastor Femi Olawale as Regional Pastor and Country coordinator.
Throne of Grace Church was established in 1999 as the first physical presence of RCCG in Windsor with the mission inspired by the ACTS of the Apostles through its founding Pastor Bowo Olagbegi to progressively impact the society by providing a platform for individuals and society in Accelerating destinies, Changing circumstance and Transforming lives.
To help us achieve these objectives, Throne of Grace has established various departments, missions and sections to educate one another, provide for the needy and impact our society by taking up specific programs aimed at magnifying Jesus Christ our Lord, Saviour and Advocate in the community in which we reside. Some of these programs include Spiritual learning, Secular learning and not for profit projects. In addition to our weekly services on Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays, we partner with various organizations to continually promote better living and impact our environment and society.
